If the electricity bill is abnormally high, it is a disorder that is not caused by the increase of the FT value of electricity. Try to check by observing the rotation of the meter to see whether the speed is consistent or not, or test by writing down the meter number first. Then turn off all electrical appliances in the house without having to pull the cutout or breaker down and observe at the meter at home whether the disk inside the meter rotates or no. If the plate inside the meter is still rotated or left for a while, then the meter value moves up. That may be a warning sign that in our house, an electrical leakage occurs.
2. The power cut off often
Popular advertising sentence “Safe T Cut, cut before die, warning before fainting” With this powerful advertisement, most people are familiar with electric cutters and are increasingly popular with cutters. But actually, the Safe T Cut is not the name of the machine, but the brand of the power cutter.

Because this device will detect the power cut that exceeds the value that will start to be harmful to humans. There are 2 types of cut-off devices, which are RCCB for cut-off the electrical leakage only and RCBO can cut off both leakage current and overload and short circuit covering the whole house. It can be used in place of circuit breakers. If used as a main switch, in the event of a leakage or overload, the machine will automatically shut off Therefore, first, if the circuit breaker or circuit breaker cuts frequently. Try to check the machine first whether working normally or not.
3. Touch the appliance and feel electric shock
Usually in the home, grounding is installed in electrical appliances that are prone to electrical leakage easily or with metal structures such as water heater, refrigerator, oven, etc., which the ground wire will leak electricity through the ground via grounding instead of flowing through our bodies. In case of grounding Vacuum leakage or circuit breakers are installed, but when the hand touches the electrical installation point, metal frame or electrical appliances and often feel electric shock, may be caused by electric leakage in electrical circuits or electrical appliances. Try to test using a screwdriver to measure electricity (Test Lamp). Touch the item or area in question If there is a red light or the light is on the screwdriver shows that electrical leakage occurs from appliances electricity at that point.
